Party Time and Exciting News!

Oh, we're gonna have a PARTY!!!! Oh, yes, it's that time of year again for the Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop Party!  Of course, I was going to have a party anyways to go with my BIG EXCITING NEWS but I had such fun participating in this blog hop last year that I thought we should just all PARTY BIG TIME!

Tomorrow, March 17th, visit HERE to see the list of all the participating blogs.  Believe me, you'll need the mega size insulated cuppa joe and a few hours just to yourself to indulge in visiting some amazing people.

My giveaway...(2) 3 yard cuts of this gorgeous fabric!! Yes, that's 6 yards total.  Oh, this is fun lol! Plus, a very cool project folder and matching case, perfect for supplies.




I will ship Canada and US only.  To Enter, leave one comment on this post telling me this:  What is your favorite on-line quilt shop?  Only comments answering the question will be valid for the giveaway. 

AND MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE ME A WAY TO CONTACT YOU!! It would just be so sad if your name was drawn and you were a NO-Reply commenter. If you don't have a blog ID then leave me your name and email in your comment.  Giveaway ends March 23, 2012

Now, THE BIG EXCITING NEWS!!
I am starting my own longarm quilting business!!!!  After much prayer and much consultation, I have been blessed with this wonderful opportunity and I am so doing my Happy Dance right now lol!

Let me introduce my business partner, Grace:


 Isn't she just beautiful :) She stipples so beautifully and next week we start practicing our pantos for overall designs.

Happy Stitching and Good Luck in the Giveaway!

Good luck on your business! I'm a long arm quilter too and business has picked up slowly in the two yrs since I started, but it's getting better.
My fabric online shop for fabric is fabric.com and connectingthreads.com I pretty much don't shop any other places. and I live in the sticks so the closest quilt store is 45min and with gas prices and then these two have free shipping after a certain amount..... it's great
(you have the word verification robot on)

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Wow congratulations on your new APQS!! She's a beauty. My favorite online Qulit shop would be Cotton Charm Quilts (Kelly Guy from Charming Chatter).

Stitched With Prayer said...

OH my gosh!!! Congratulations and good luck with your long arm business. I'm certain you will be a big success. I will continue to keep you in my prayers! Okay, my very favorite online shop is Shabby Fabrics...Thanks so much for a chance! Hugs...

Congratulations on your longarm business venture, Shelley! I'm sooooo happy for you. Gee, and you're only about 50 miles across the bay from me....as the crow flies...or should I say fish swims. *wink*

Gene Black said...

My favorite online quilt shop? What a hard decision! I am going to say Connecting Threads - but I love several different shops.

Grace is just lovely!

Heartsdesire said...

Wishing you and "Grace" much success on your new venture. It sounds exciting. My favourite online quilt shop is Whittles because they have a wide selection of Civil War fabrics, which I love to work with, and none of the quilt stores in my area carry. Their service is great, too, as are their prices.

Janet said...

Good luck with your new business - I hope it goes well. My favorite on-line quilt shop is The Intrepid Thread. She carries so many modern fabrics that I love and she is so friendly and quick with service.

SueB said...

Oh how exciting. Best of luck with that machine,
I love Whittles and
This-n- that fabrics, great collection

Barbara said...

Good luck to you and Grace on your new business venture! My favorite online quilt shop is primitivegatherings.us.

Warm wishes for a great business venture. My favorite online quilt shop is The Intrepid Thread (Julie just opened a new online shop) though like The Fat Quarter Shop, Pink Chalk, and Hawthorne Threads too. I tend to shop by price as first criteria. Most every online shop I've used has good service though the system they use for orders varies greatly in ease of use and accuracy. My mother does the Connecting Threads shopping for us - by mail. Their service is wonderful and their online shop looks good. Thanks for the lovely giveaway. Really like those floral fabrics.

Beth said...

Congratulations on starting your own long arm quilting business.
I really like Hancocks of Paducah as well as the Fat quarter shop from Texas. Another one that I use frequently for books is Connecting Threads. So there you go- 3 great on line shops with wonderful fabrics.
Hope that you are enjoying the blog hop and getting lots of new visitors to your page.
Regards from Western Canada,
